I haven't made anything wooden or bushcrafty for ages, so I thought I would rectify this, by setting up my pole lathe, and making some cooking spoons. I had a couple of small diameter Cherry logs at the back of the garage, which had been there for possibly fifteen years, and were therefore well seasoned. These spoons are the results of an afternoon's turnings.

The finish is "off the tools", and then burnished by rubbing vigorously up and down with a handful of shavings from under the lathe. I will confess to a little bit of cheating. Where I would have (especially with green wood) shaped the turning blanks with an axe and drawknife, for these I did the shaping on my new bandsaw. The bandsaw is making me lazy! Thanks for looking!
